For a Royal day out, head to Windsor Castle, one of the three official residences of the Queen of England. (Apparently, Buckingham Palace wasn’t big enough!) This castle is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, with over 13 acres of land, and attracting over 1 million visitors each year. You can book Windsor Castle tickets and tours to explore the place that has been home to the Royal family since the 11th century when William the Conqueror built it.
Put your crowns on and get ready for your Windsor Castle tour.
As with many castles, Windsor is no longer used for its original purpose (protecting those within from would-be invaders). Aside from visits, the castle is used for ceremonial and state occasions such as royal weddings. One hundred and fifty people call Windsor Castle their home, and so you are their guest, not a tourist! Queen Elizabeth II is officially in residence twice a year; she tends to spend her free private weekends here. Book your Windsor day tours while she is away, as the crowds will be excessive when she is in the building! A day trip to Windsor castle is an opportunity for you to enjoy over 900 years of British royal history, don’t miss out.
